A Tennessee man is dead after his motorcycle collided with a vehicle in Perry, officials said.

Deputy Danny Glass of the Houston County Sheriff’s Office said Leonard Stark, 58, of Springfield, Tenn., died at the scene after his motorcycle collided with a Ford Mustang driven by a 16-year-old juvenile.

Glass said no charges have been filed yet and the case is still under investigation. He said that Stark was going southbound at the intersection of Larry Walker Parkway and Courtney Hodges Boulevard in Perry when he was struck just before noon by the Mustang going eastbound, Glass said.
